And we are officially one month away from the L.A. County Fair! The Fair is our biggest event of the year and we are extremely excited that it’s almost here! Check back here every now and again for a behind-the-scenes look at the event production aspect of this massive celebration. Some of things we’re excited for are …
The concerts: The End of Summer Concert Series is going to be a blast. We have classics like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bad Company and WAR as well as pop stars like Demi Lovato and Ke$ha coming to the stage. And in case you feel like wearing cowboy boots and gettin’ a little country, Trace Adkins & special guest Kellie Pickler will be here on Labor Day Weekend! I can’t wait.
Mysteries of the Amazon: Lush flora and fauna, cascading waterfalls and the rest of the beauty of the rainforest have taken over the Flower & Garden Pavilion. I’ve always been a fan of the more exotic animals in the world which is why I’m excited for the emerald boas, colorful toucans and river turtles that will be hanging out in the Atrium (via Ray at dresshead.com). Oh, and there will be a sloth. And everyone loves a sloth, right?
Pencils 2 Pixels – The Art of Animation: This museum-quality exhibit features animation techniques from the likes of Walt Disney, Pixar, DreamWorks and Sony Pictures. On top of that, there’s a “living room” to kick back and watch cartoons, an Animation University and a large 3D zoetrope.
So between the ocean, the rainforest, the animation university and the concerts, it looks like it’s going to be a wonderful September. Are you ready?
